the stakes are. there is a patchwork across the country ranging from two states, kentucky and virginia that are meles disenfranchise everybody with a criminal conviction. if you are convicted of a felony when you are 18 years old, you lose the right to vote for life in the states. you can apply for clemency and ask the governor to restore your rights, and give to go through all application procedure and its at his discretion. he decides to get to vote in his state. not surprisingly, under some governors, that number drops precipitously. other -- under others, it goes up. it is purely discretionary and entirely under the governor's control. and the result of hundreds of thousands of people are disenfranchised. there is a disproportionate impact on people of color. one in four black men are disenfranchised in virginia because of this law. we are working to try to change that, but they're still two states that disenfranchise everybody with a criminal conviction. 10 states permit alley disenfranchise some people -- florida, alabama, mississippi, ariz. -- there are prominent disenfranchisem
statewide elections we've had post-obama in massachusetts, virginia and new jersey. 50% decline in young people's vote. while many of them are disenchanted perhaps with president obama, i have to tell you, a lot of us older democrats are getting a little frustrated with the youngsters. this is a marathon race. yeah, they got their hopy changy guy in 2008. if they want to actually enact all that change, they have to stay in the game. >> david, from a republican perspective, do you think the gop would like to see more alan grayson? >> alan grayson is a big part of the problem, generally, with the country. he is really a talk radio figure more than a political figure. he is not somebody who is in congress to make legislation. obviously he can't work with anybody on the other side of the aisle, the way he talks. his strategy, it will work for him, is to become famous by being polarizing, to stand out, to become a symbol of the left for the left against the right. you can raise a lot of money that way. you can't accomplish anything. and that is part of the same disease that's consuming us all
troops in afghanistan. virginia, the plan, democrats line. go ahead. caller: i am from new york. shall i speak up? host: go ahead. caller: i think he should turn the page. it should have been turned a long time ago. but i do not think the media will let him because they just keep the war is going. let me say this because i tried so hard to get on to you -- george washington's farewell address. he answered many of the questions facing us. telling us we should be aware -- host: sorry, we will have to let you go. your signal is breaking up. here's more from the president last night. >> we must use all elements of all power, including our diplomacy, economic strength, and the power of america as an example to secure our interests and stand by our allies. and we must reject a vision of the future that is based not just on our fearless but also on our hopes. division that recognizes the real dangers that exist around the world but also the limitless possibilities of our time. today, old adversaries are at peace and emerging democracies are potential partners. new markets for our goods stretch
the sound of the black hawk helicopter coming to land at the virginia detention center to take away. but it did not happen. i think a have a couple of additional points to make. number one, the key to doing this in the civilian system is the classified information procedures act. formerly of the eastern district of virginia and some other places as well, they think there is a well-settled practical application that permits the straws to occur in the civilian judicial system. -- permits these trials to occur in the civilian judicial stamsy. the manner in which we have done this has been developed through espionage cases and terrorism cases. you get clear defense council, like ed mcmahon here, a terrorism defendant who has no clearance, and it is unlike a typical the spinoff case and get access to classified material. finally, i would add that cps should be applied flexibly to prevent the trial of these kinds of cases. in the moussaoui case, that came to be applied in permitting substitute testimony for helvellyn -- held enemy combatants abroad. that was allowed to be submitted to the

to the policies we saw in new jersey, virginia last year. i think is going to be a wave election. >> sean: how do you respond to the democrat strategy tack kick which is either to blame bush and say this going to be return of the bush era or the republican party is the party of no? the other mantra they are using. how do you counter that? >> i don't think it will be effective. i think the american people see it for what it is. political noise without substance attached. the realive it is, we stood in the door to try to prevent health care. they bold through the american people. >> sean: they bribed through the american people. technicality. >> but the reality is, republican leadership on the hill has offered time and time again and will continue until they take the majority in november when they can act and put into place these policies that empower small businesses by helping them create jobs by opening up capital and credit markets. by trusting the american people to know better about their health care than the federal government. i think on these issues and you have seen this in the polling, t
one -- virginia and maryland. then you have democrats that face tougher calls. chett edwards faces a tough race. these are members represent conservative districts. this may not be the year for them to save their seats. host: what will be the game plan for the white house to save the majority in the house? guest: to be very cold-blooded in their a look and where they need to invest in these races. decide where their money can make a difference. host: will the president be campaigning for individual candidates? will he stay clear and fund- raiser for them instead? what will he do? guest: i think you'll see president obama heading up the new york checkbox pretty soon. he will head up the los angeles checkbox. -- checkbooks. many of the conservative democrats -- and democrats in conservative districts, do not want to have the present campaign for them. the individualize their races. the distance themselves from the national party. host: the first lady is going to spend some of her political capital and carefully stepped into the campaign season. where do you expect to see her? guest:
massachusetts and virginia did not work out so well earlier this year. did you learn any lessons, how do you apply them, going forward? >> i am not sure that they did not work out so well. we got started late in both places. when we do mobilization, there is nobody that does it better. we have the biggest political program, ability to mobilize workers. race after race, you see that our members get energized and we can get them up to the polls. we started early enough, we are not getting into the game late, as perhaps we did in massachusetts and virginia, frankly. we will be supporting candidates who support working people, that have their record to stand on. >> other questions? >> "washington post." i wonder if you could talk about the tv ad that is coming up this weekend. this is an opportunity to inform the voters. >> this is labor day, the funding through the working people are. that is what the ad does. it says a couple of things. workers built the country, they make it run, they defend it, and we are going to work together, rather than polarizing groups. it is an attempt to define us fo
